Secrets: The dolphins’ method of fishing served as the inspiration for this Box Figurine: the dolphins surround their chosen dinner until all the fish are herded into a compact mass. Here the fish, and Peter’s signature mouse, are seen making a desperate bid for freedom. The Version One edition features six bottle-nosed dolphins and one “dolphin-nosed” bottle, and the interior depicts a group of fish plotting their escape. For the Infinity Version, the bottle is replaced by a seventh dolphin and the interior shows the frogman, whose flippers can be found on the exterior of the box.
This piece is signed by Peter, with "Dolphin #001" written on the bottom. With no box, this piece is wrapped carefully in bubble wrap.
